Prompted multiple times for primary password

Since the last Firefox update I am being prompted for my primary password at random intervals of time. Before I only needed to enter my primary password once per session and this new behavior is a bit worrying as I didn't see it documented anywhere (is that really Firefox asking me for my credentials?). I had a look in the settings but couldn't see any new "timeout" feature or anything in the Privacy & Security section. What gives?

Thanks for any answer that will explain this mew behavior.
